Welcome to our home page!  The BC Social Studies Teachers Association is a provincial specialist association from within the BCTF.  Our primary objectives are to promote, support and improve the teaching of social studies, as well as to liaise with the Ministry of Education regarding curriculum development and changes.

Each year the BCSSTA holds its annual conference to provide members with a well known keynote speaker, a variety of informative and stimulating workshops and an opportunity for colleagues to network and share their teaching practices.  In addition, the BCSSTA reaches out to new teachers at the BCTF New Teacher’s Conference and at workshops at various colleges and universities.

The benefits of membership include: our annual conference; timely curriculum updates and discussion via the list serve; access to classroom resources, Ministry updates, professional development opportunities via the list serve and website; and, informative and practical classroom tips via our electronic newsletter.  Most importantly, the BCSSTA serves as an advocate for its members on pressing issues such as curriculum revisions and updates, new curriculum subjects, electronic exams and provincial exams in general.  We also encourage and support the development of Local Specialist Associations and their role to network and support colleagues within their respective districts.
